hi Nuno,

certainly suspicious, especially so since he was a leader in open source software. hopefully the exact cause of death (if that is true) will be discovered.

I dont believe the tweets at all. I think the police are involved but I doubt it was suicide. I hope that close friends or family will come forth to shed more light on this. if they do not it will only increase reason for suspicions.
